I'm experiencing a weird problem and i'm pretty sure it isn't my isp's fault considering none of my friends are experiencing this issue. When im using my computer, my packet loss jumps up to about 15-20% out of nowhere. I have no idea how it's happening. I'm running no torrent programs or any program that would do this (to my knowledge). To fix this i usually restart my computer and do a power cycle with my modem. Most of the time this will work, but sometimes i just watch it jump right back up. Even after fixing the problem it happens a few hours later. I really cant continue like this. any ideas?

I'm not sure why you don't think it's not your ISP, but let's do a test. Go to www.dslreports.com and sign up for an account. You can then run their Line Packet Loss Testing under the Tools menu. It'll give you a report and tell you on which hop the packets are being lost. If the loss occurs anywhere outside your local network, it's the ISP's problem.
